    1. Chris,

      I have been to your fair country and I cannot say enough good things about it, I could move to Sydney tomorrow. The issue is your lovely home is very far away for many bands to travel to, so that is probably why Priest hasn’t played there much.

  2. I saw Judas Priest last Sunday in Corpus Christi. There were about 3,000 in attendance and the show rocked. Great set list and the sound, outstanding.
